Red Cross Coins

The green coin counting machines found in many supermarkets can now be used to contribute pocket change to the American Red Cross. Coinstar says that if just half of the Americans who live within two miles of a Coinstar machine donate a handful of change, it can raise $65 million for the American Red Cross. The company has mobilized its network of 8,800 supermarket-based consumer coin counting machines to accept donations on behalf of the American Red Cross. However not all these machines have the Red Cross option. Coinstar machines located in financial institutions, as well as in Farmer Jack, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Meijer and Weis stores are not enabled with the Red Cross donation feature.
